  2. Great benefits. Hard to get promoted and move within departments. Doesn't matter that you already work for the Company.

    Pros

    Tons of access to upper mgmt and career opportunities. They push educational growth as a part of the culture, and that's amazing.

    Cons

    Very behind in technology. Old platforms are always being leveraged instead of efficient, cutting edge technologies.

    I worked at Cigna as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very talented people. I had good flexibility in my position. I was a consultant and paid well...though not towards the end. Consultant rates are the lowest in the industry now. I loved my job and the people I worked with. It was the best job I ever had. I never would have left and wanted to become an employee until new manager came in.

    Cons

    Managers are not trained well. They are allowed to bully and harass employees and upper management and HR will not intervene. New manager that took over my department intimidated everyone. 18 people in 12 months left or were terminated...including offshore resources that asked for reassignment out of fear. Several employees and consultants were 'blacklisted' by one individual and HR has not been able to make the connection and deal with the REAL problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to how your managers are treating people. Maybe the problem is the manager and not the staff. If you are seeing complete turnover of a dept and a manager that has nothing good to report about a single worker...maybe THEY are the problem. Stop sticking your heads in the sand and stop sweeping issues...like bullying...under the rug. Confront it and deal with it. It is only going to get worse the longer they get away with it. We find bullying intolerable in schools...why not in the corporate environment? This person single-handedly destroyed the reputation of MANY highly skilled workers...out of revenge and insecurity. They cannot get jobs at Cigna and though this person no longer holds a high level managerial position...she is still employed at Cigna and bullying her subordinates.

    Pros

    The office atmosphere is great. For the most part, everyone gets along and helps one another out when needed. Management is respectful of employees and your life outside of work. Fantastic training program and instructors. They prepare you well for your day-to-day responsibilities.

    Cons

    It takes awhile to get promoted, which upsets a few people. Also, the sales reps we work with aren't the most appealing people. Management can be tough to get ahold of and are sometimes wishy-washy about making decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote quicker and make yourself more available to underwriters. Also, be willing to get more aggressive to sell business.

    Pros

    Great mission statement, it feels good working for a company that treats it's customer right. The pay and benefits are average, but adequate. The company is really becoming a global operation, versus just US based, and it's an exciting time to be here.

    Cons

    The company truly believes in work life balance, but with fiscal tightening, productivity has to come from somewhere.
